RWJF Still Building Evidence to Prevent Childhood Obesity

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) is accepting applications for the ninth round of its “Healthy Eating Research: Building Evidence to Prevent Childhood Obesity program.  With overarching goals to reverse the childhood obesity epidemic, eliminate disparities, and help all children achieve a healthy weight, RWJF has issued eight rounds of grants thus far in support of research on environmental and policy strategies likely to effect healthy eating among children, particularly those within targeted demographic groups such as racial/ethnic minorities and low-income populations.  In addition to accepting grant applications for Round 9 (for up to $190,000), RWJF is also soliciting grant applications through its New Connections program (for up to $100,000 each). Concept papers for both opportunities are due on August 12th.
